Looks nice got a 1250 myself that needs a minor engine repair...broken governor rod. I was going to just repair but looking at yours makes me want to tear it all down & rebuild it. Will yours be a worker or a looker.

Looks real pretty. All that time and work just to go out and get it dirty.  Or is this strictly a show tractor?

SWEET Cubby.Paint looks like it came out really good.

 

Did you use IH Cub Cadet paint? Or Rust-Oleum Sunburst yellow? Looks like Rust-Oleum paint.I think the Rust-Oleum orange is a slight bit brighter orange.But truthfully I like the brighter orange better.

Thanks everyone. I used the Majic paint from Big R. Yah I know a lot of people don't like it but it seemed to work for me? Yep gonna put her to work doing some mowing and maybe get a blower or blade for it.

That Magic paint doesn't cover very well but has a NICE Hard glossy finish.It seems to hold up very well and doesn't seem to chip or scratch as fast as Rustoleum rattle can paint.
